Abstract
  1. Introduction (excerpt) - The significance now attached to increasing the participation of women in technology and technological education reflects two world-wide trends. The first is the way in which technology is permeating all domains of activity in the contemporary world, with pervasive roles in national economic development and in our everyday experience. Not only are occupations involving technology on the increase, but populations in general, men and women, are engaging with the processes, products and effects of technology on a day to day basis. The second is recognition of the need for action by the international community in securing the advancement of women and the elimination of gender-based discrimination, particularly in the fields of education and employment.
